Random / Learning to fly - Warning - Goofy Drone Stuff
« on: March 07, 2017, 02:25:41 AM »
Spring is finally breaking here in the Gorge.  We usually get super mild winters with very little snow but almost 100 inches in Hood River this year :).  My SSD card and reader finally arrived last week for my new drone.  This is the first drone i have ever owned (or flown) and man am I having a great time with it.  I entered midstream, with the tech already being incredibly refined. It was the video / photo capabilities that hooked me in but the flying makes all of that more interesting and challenging.

Here are a few clips from this week shot in 5.2K RAW.  I uploaded at 4K so check that out if your connection allows.  Uploading at 4K may be a mistake.  That resolution looks fine but the lower res options seem to fare worse than usual.  I am learning a lot on each outing.  So, here's to the process:

Random / The road to 5G
« on: February 22, 2017, 04:45:54 AM »
Pretty cool to see Gigabit phones and mobile networks coming online.  https://www.macrumors.com/2017/02/21/qualcomm-lte-gigabit-lte-modems/

Mobile networks that have the capacity exceed the static broadband networks ramping up from now.  While that is an exciting prospect for immediate usability, 5G is supposed to have a decided standard this year with real implementation by 2020.  It always takes a while for these things to ramp up to near the promised numbers, but even so, this is a monumental shift.

It is fun to theorize what types of products and processes will arise from that level of moving data at near real time speeds.  Devices communicating with one another with negligible latency.  That will be the normal for the next generation.

This is incredible.  Check out your area over time.  Google just did a massive overhaul of this feature with petabytes of new data.  Watch the trees vanish.  Here is Hood River:

"Swimproof", GPS without phone, Bluetooth Music without phone.  Add some wireless waterproof earbuds and that has promise for a nice SUP kit.

Random / Wanna go to Mars?
« on: June 11, 2016, 01:08:36 PM »
If you are becoming tired of the Bum/Anti-Bum debate here on the zone and need a break :), how about a trip to Mars? Incredible NASA Curiosity Rover imagery and an amazing 360 viewer.

Are we living in a simulation?  Musk puts the odds as a billion to one that we are.

We have added a Recent Topics block at the bottom of each page.  This had been a feature request that (I hope) will not cause usability issues.  Note that both "recent topics" and "recent posts" can be collapsed using the -/+ boxes at the right of each block.  I am hoping that our recent update will make this workable on all devices, but please let me know if this causes display or usability issues.

General Discussion / Site updates
« on: May 07, 2016, 06:19:04 AM »
Hi guys,

We are working on updating the site today.  There may be a few hiccups along the way.  One database update created some issues and I needed to restore from a backup.  The backup was a couple of hours old so we lost a handful of early morning posts.  Apologies for that.  We will try to keep this quick and painless.

So sad to see this.  Even with all of these 80 and 90 degree days, the water is still 53.
